How to start telling great fundraising stories

Great fundraising, or perhaps we should call it 'StoryRaising', happens when we tell great stories.

Stories have the ability to connect people to your project and organization in a way that facts and statistics never can.
A great story is a doorway to almost experience the magic of what you do. Through the narrative of each story, your donors will resonate more with you and your cause.
One thing that sets apart those who tell great stories, from those who don't have stories to tell, is knowing where to begin.
When you have a new success story in your organization that you're proud of and want to share, most of us are wired to start with the wrong question, wondering 'what' we should say.
To become great at 'StoryRaising' we need to start our storytelling by asking ourselves two questions.
- 'Who' the story is for?
- 'Why' this story will resonate with this person?
With this clarity it becomes much simpler to know 'what' we should say.
Happy StoryRaising!
